Back in August when they were erecting the fence, I was out running and personally asked the project manager if 'it was a go?' He answered yes and that they would start digging at the end of September, so lets see if they break ground next week.

Wow! Amazing. The Galleria expansion, the River Oaks District Grand Opening, and now The Kirby Collection: Houston is white hot! The Kirby Collection will hopefully bring the remaining luxury shops like Escada, Stefano Ricci, Oscar De la Renta, Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga, Donna Karan, Scoop NYC, and Manolo Blahnik. The Kirby Collection may even be the development to finally land Brioni. Let's hope.

Those type of stores seem to gravitate and be close together. They want premium space, so if the Kirby Collection can provide this there may be a little cluster. Right now West Ave didn't attract that, ROD did, and will likely bring in more. Do we know the tenants for the jewelry box of the Galleria? Even Highland Village doesn't have those stores. Neither does West Gray, both of which are closer to River Oaks than ROD or the Galleria.

Which Goodwill location do you donate your old items?

I just wish Houston had a Patagonia store like Austin. I'v never heard of any of those others. 

 

Patagonia closely guards their image even to the point of sacrificing profits.  Sustainability, social responsibility, and eco-friendly citizenship are among the business tenets they seem to practice.  Since Houston's economy depends on the vibrancy of an industry that's the antithesis of at least one of those attributes, I imagine opening in brick & mortar fashion would appear as a compromise to their fealties.

Patagonia being in Houston is a matter of whether they have much of a market here.  REI, which is a couple notches down market and far less clothing oriented, has three stores in and around Austin as opposed to two here - and both of ours are smaller than the REIs in more outdoor oriented areas.  Patagonia's gear is great, sure, but it's also directed more toward things that we don't have a whole lot of here - such as mountains to climb, backpacking trails, or cold weather to bundle up for.

Ok off today will go walk over there. I will also go see where Hanover is building the 39 floor highrise off Steel St. Last I saw the property was no activity last time I checked.

I believe the rug store on that site closed within the last few days. Edited by Sky-guy

Swanky new details have emerged about the residential portion of the Kirby Collection, a $125 million mixed-use project in Upper Kirby.

 

Residences will include townhomes, garden lofts, apartments and penthouses, Thor Equities CEO Joseph Sitt and Houston-based developer Jack Bousquet told the Houston Business Journal. The development's seven townhomes will average 1,800 square feet and feature concrete floors, high ceilings and open floor plans.

Kirby Collection apartment units will include floor-to-ceiling glass walls, private balconies, walk-in closets and European-style kitchens with a central island. The development will offer 180 standard apartment units ranging from 1,000 square feet to 1,800 square feet. Garden lofts with outdoor bars and grills will range from 1,700 square feet to 3,000 square feet, and five penthouse units will range from 1,900 square feet to 3,000 square feet and offer double master suites and more.
"We want something that’s truly iconic," Sitt said. "When this thing is done, it’s going to be the most spectacular thing that anyone in this area has even seen."
